Over 83% of the current global population is estimated to have a smartphone today, and the number is rising rapidly. A lion's share of these phones are used and produced in the Global South. Small, portable, and relatively cheap, the software and hardware of the phones are altering the manner in which individuals in the Global South communicate, and even the languages in which they communicate. An instrument vital to teaching and communication, the production of this tool is nevertheless tied to e-waste generation, child labor in the mining and assembly processes, and numerous other unsustainable and exploitative processes.

The West Chester University Poetry Center is pleased to announce this Call for Papers and Poems for our virtual poetry and pedagogy conference,The Dramatic I/Eye: Reflections on Voice and Form in Contemporary Poetry, to be held November 11-12, 2022. Early Twentieth Century African American poet Sterling Brown once said, “every I is a dramatic I.” How many times must we remind our students (and ourselves) not to confuse the speaker with the poet when they are analyzing poetry? How many times do we anticipate that a poet’s work will give voice to a particular subject position, identity,  experience, or way of seeing the world simply because we’ve read their bio sketch? What happens when the poet or the speaker pushes the bounds of our expectations?

Gothic Adaptation: Intermedial and Intercultural Shape-Shifting

Sunday, July 31, 2022

The Gothic is a wide-ranging mode that comprises multiple genres, including but not limited to literature, drama, film, television, art, music, games, comics, and graphic novels. It is also a shape-shifting mode. Like vampires or werewolves, expressions of the Gothic frequently and uncannily change form, thereby calling into question the stability and desirability of fixed generic, cultural, and mediatic boundaries. Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), the most often adapted Gothic text, first took the shape of both a novel and a play before transforming into innumerable plays, operas, ballets, graphic novels, TV shows, films, comics, and games.

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 22, 2022

**Please note the updated deadline for submissions***

In his Timaeus, Plato hypothesizes that human beings participate in the same world-soul that animates the cosmos, a microcosm of the wider macrocosm. This analogy proved stimulating for the inhabitants of the Middle Ages and inspired them to explore the connections between the body and the wider universe, as well as the relationship between bodies. This conference likewise encourages scholars across the fields of medieval studies to examine the body, the human, and the spaces in-between.

For SAMLA 94 (Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13, 2022; Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront | Jacksonville, FL). (12-15min papers)

Radical changes have been felt nowhere as intensely as in Berlin throughout the long twentieth century: shifting from Weimar liberties to Nazi oppression, and from Cold War fragmentation to an unsteady reunification in 1990 and after, Berlin has often transformed into a space in flux focalizing emergence. Many texts like to channel Berlin's role as a precarious playground of transgressive unsettlement.
